As the most anticipated album of 2022, I Never Liked You has delivered for tastemakers as well. Vulture hailed it as “a sound that’s both instantly recognizable and easily distinguishable from past works,” and Rolling Stone applauded, “I Never Like You is filled with turn-up boasts and emotional pleas, a familiar blend that has defined Future’s catalogue.” Billboard raved, “The Hall of Fame tandem of Future and Drake catch another win on the slow-winding song ‘WAIT FOR YOU.” Complex summed it up best, “The highs of the album demonstrate why people would propose Future as the best rapper alive.”
It’s no wonder GQ recently christened him “the best rapper alive.”
The album stands out as Future’s first body of work since 2020’s platinum-selling High Off Life, which emerged as his sixth consecutive #1 debut on the Billboard Top 200. He stacks I Never Liked You with powerhouse anthems. The single “Wait For U” [feat. Drake & Tems] showcases the emotional side of Future, and is an instantly quotable anthem, while he also links with Drake yet again for “I’m On One.” He continues showcasing his most emotional and honest songwriting yet with the crooning solo cut “Love U Better,” while Atlanta stands up with the raucous and raw “For A Nut” [feat. Young Thug & Gunna], and “Voodoo” [feat. Kodak Black] conjures an unbreakable spell of its own. The album concludes with “Back to the Basics,” marking a full circle moment for the hip hop titan. These sixteen tracks seal the record’s status as the biggest and boldest release of the year.
